Watchable.
19 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Back in the early days of talking cartoons, often the films consisted of lots of singing and cute animals. These were very saccharine indeed. Fortunately, "The Herring Murder" has no singing and it's not so cute that it might make you puke. Not exactly a glowing endorsement, I know!

The film begins with some gorilla shooting a small fish. Normally, no one would care or they'd perhaps marvel at a gorilla with a gun, but here in the cartoon world, it's MURDER and detective Bimbo (he's a DOG….get your mind out of the gutter) is going to investigate. During the course of this, you have a brief appearance by Ko Ko the Clown, see some amazingly cool anthropomorphic houses and have a lot of cartoon silliness. Unfortunately, none of this is really that funny though the animation is quite nice—which you'd expect from a Fleischer Brothers production. Watchable and it holds up reasonably well today but it is certainly not a film I'd rush to see.
